Re: document jams ep 4000

Ceck the rubber rollers on the doc feeder. They are probably real soft and mushy. If so they need to be replaced!

Need user manual and software for a HP ScanJet 4p scanner


HP ScanJet 4p Scanners - How to Use the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) gtabseps.gif
gtabblt.gif Tips for Using gtabblt.gif Step 1 - Load the Paper gtabblt.gif Step 2 - Scan the Document gtabblt.gif To Scan a Single Page gtabseps.gif Tips for Using
  • Remove any paper from the copyboard glass before using the ADF.
  • Straighten any curls or wrinkles from documents before putting them on the document tray. If this is not possible, do not scan these documents using the ADF. Instead, use the copyboard glass or make a photocopy of the documents and scan the photocopies.
  • Remove staples, paper clips, and any other materials from documents.
  • Avoid documents with tears, perforations, or punch holes.
  • Do not use the ADF to scan sheets of uncommon paper or other media, such as the following: - transparencies - gummed-backed paper - magazine pages - lightweight ("onionskin") carbons
  • For paper smaller than 5 inches (127 mm) by 7 inches (178 mm) or larger than 14 inches (356 mm) by 8.5 inches (216 mm), use the scanner glass instead of the ADF. Paper smaller than the minimum size may cause a paper jam.
  • For paper lighter than 16 lb bond (60 g/m sq) or heavier than 32 lb bond (120 g/m sq), use the scanner glass instead of the ADF.
  • Before scanning, always push the front of the ADF downward to the scanner to ensure that the magnetic latches are engaged.
Step 1 - Load the Paper Besides the instructions below, quick reference decals on the input tray and access hatch show the order of steps for paper loading.
  1. Turn on the scanner.
  2. Ensure the scanner's scanner glass is free of paper.
  3. Turn the green paper load lever into an upright and open position. Refer to decal number 1 located on the ADF access hatch.
  4. Put the top end of the paper stack face up on the input tray. Refer to decal number 2 and pointer arrows on the ADF input tray.
  5. Push the paper stack up against the green document guide and slide it right against the green registration stop, which is in the middle of the paper load window.
  6. Turn the green paper load lever 45 degrees into the closed position. This will secure the paper stack. Refer to decal number 3 on the ADF access hatch. The ADF is now loaded and ready for scanning.
Step 2 - Scan the Document The ADF works with many software packages that are compatible with the HP ScanJet color scanners. To scan a document, refer to the user's manual of the software package being used. To Scan a Single Page To scan a single page while the ADF is installed on the scanner, do the following.
  1. Remove any pages from the ADF input tray.
  2. Raise the ADF.
  3. Place the page on the scanner's copyboard glass.
  4. Lower the ADF all the way and do the scan.

Paper jams when using the ADF. Canon IC D780

Hi there,

When using ADF
* Set a document on the Platen Glass if you want to scan it at optimum quality,
* The area (range) within 0.08"/2mm from the top edge if document cannot be printed since the machine cannot scan it.
*Do not load the following types of documents in the ADF. They will jam.
-Wrinkled or creased paper
- Curled paper
- Torn paper
- Paper with holes
- Carbon paper or carbon-backed paper
- Surface treated paper
- Onion skin or thin paper
- Photogragh or thick paper.
1) Remove any documents from the PLaten Glass.
2) Open the Document Tray.
3) Load the document in the ADF.
Load the document with the side you want to copy, or scan face up in the ADF.
4) Adjust the Doument Guides to match the document width.
Note :
Ensure that the edge of the document stack is in line with the Paper Size Mark imprinted on the Document Tray.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

HP F4280 All in one Printer. Feed jammed (AVERY 8376 Ink Jet Business Cards); printer made noises, finally stopped; pulled paper backwards out of printer. Turned the printer on and the cartridges bang...

Hi there,

Well it's likely two cause in your case -
1.- It might be a misplaced actuator, check for instructions at:

2.- Check the power supply and its cable. It might be at the end of its life. Ideally, you should check the power supply under load at its limit. You may use a resistor rated for the load. It will be HOT, be careful. If you don't have it, might be more cumbersome, but you can use the printer as load, and make a test connector that allow you access to voltage terminals.

Good Luck!!

Kyocera Mita 4230

it could be lots of things but for starters check to see if the other paper sources cause the same problem. try using the bypass one sheet at a time at first. second, there is a sensor shortly after or around the drum unit, if it doesn't activate it within it's specified time it will stop the machine, causing a jam.
thirdly is may be the transfer/ seperation issue, there also a couple of transport belts that may not be turning. check everything at let know if those things solve it.

Thank You,

Constant Jam 71 in the document handler

Check feed Rollers,and Timing Switch-no 4 in attached file.
Switch was not deactivated in proper time .That means,maybe paper path has some obstructions(paper scrap etc... ) or some spring on switch is not in proper position.6845a74.jpg
